How To Tell If Your West Palm Beach Home Has A Rodent Problem

a rat

If you see mice and rats hanging out near the foundation of your home or see those rodents scurrying along baseboards inside your home, there is no doubt that you have a rodent problem.

But this is rarely how homeowners in West Palm Beach find out they have a rodent problem. Mice and rats are nocturnal by nature. They prefer to be running around when it's dark. This makes it difficult to see them when they first start to explore your West Palm Beach yard and/or home.

Of the two, mice are the most difficult to detect because they are extremely timid creatures that hide from sight. Let's take a look at what you're most likely to see when rodents start to become a problem, and why it is important to take action against rodents when you see these warning signs.

Rodent Droppings

Mice and rats leave their droppings in many places. If you begin to notice these droppings, it is important to examine them closely. Fresh droppings will be a dark color and moist when compressed. Old droppings will look more ashen and will crumble when compressed.

Where To Look For Rodent Droppings

  • The perimeter around your home between your landscaping and your foundation walls should be your first area to check. Be sure to check on top of electrical boxes, pipes, and around exterior wall penetrations as you conduct this inspection.
  • Look in the cabinet underneath your kitchen sink. This moisture point is a common entry point for rodents.
  • Do an inspection of your attic spaces. If you have rodents in your home, they're likely to spend some time in your attic because heat rises. You should see droppings sprinkled about on top of fiberglass insulation.
  • Behind your washer and dryer. Often, rodents chew their way into a home through vent covers, and ultimately chew through exhaust tubes to get all the way in. This could have them leaving droppings in hidden places within your laundry room.
